OU* From present appearances, says the Louisville Journal, we think it not very un likely that we may have the Tory editor of the Democrat with us in the support of General Taylor for the Presidency. Well, our neigh bor must bear in mind, that, where two ride the same horse, one must ride behind, and we shall be sure to crowd him pretty far back upon the crupper. Scarcely is a President warm in his chair, before his successor is nominated. JV. O. Southerner. Such haste in looking out for a successor, says the Pittsburg Telegraph, is perfectly ex cusable in the people when governed by a man so contemptibly incompetent as Polk. The wonder is why the people do not rise in mass and thrust him and his advisers out of the White House. Vy What does the Inquirer think of the re solutions of the anti-TATLo* Legislature of Massachusetts ??Tory Pennsylvanian. We do not know what the Inquirer thinks of them nor care, but tee think they axe as con temptible and as disgraceful to the authors of them, as the conduct of President Polk in en deavoring to supersede old Rough and Ready by putting Senator Benton over his head, and of the anti-Taylor Tory House of Representa tives in pronouncing Gen. Taylor unfit to be the Commander-in-chief in Mexico, and cen- j suring him for the capitulation of Monterey ! 0t> Last week there were lying at Louis ville 30 steamboats, ladened to the guards with freight waiting to g<*t through the Portland canal into the lower Ohio. They were detain ed by the filling up of the canal witlj mud and uand. Now, we ask Mr. Po!k> whether he would not show more sense and more honesty in signing a bill for buying this canal and keeping it navigable by the Government, than in refusing to do so and yet expressing himself ready to sign a bill to dig a canal across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec ? ?p>On the 20th of May, 1846, Mr. Stewart submitted the following resolution : (See Ho. Journal, page 380.) Resolved, That the Committee on Military Affairs be instructed to report a bill increasing the pay of the volunteers from seven to ten dol lars per month, and granting to those who serve to the end of the war, or die in the service, one hundred and sixty acres of land. The said resolution was read : And the question being put?shall the rule be suspended ? It was decided in the negative, (two-thirds not voting in favor thereof,) yeas' 70, nays 75.

Com* American* >11, let us lomIly attest The valor of one, we will never forget, We have many a Star ahining bright in the West, The Star I allude to, will ahine brighter yet. The horizon of War, he haa juat risen o'er, Still he shed* o'er his country, a halo of light, Folks will know him again, that ne'er knew him before, And recount to their children his every fight. We rememl>er Mount Vernon, where Washington sleeps, We honor, we cherish hia memory now, There is many a stranger looks on it and weeps, And is not ashamed to his ashes to bow. He ia gone, but he still a pure legacy left: A Hero himself, he left Htroes behind. America is not of Heroes bereft; In Taylur we courage and judgment can find. Taylor proved, let his enernitt talk as they please, (I know that his enemies must be but few,) That heme', fought, and whipped 8anta Anna with ease, And did all that we could expect him to do. He ia still in the field, let them come if they dare, He is "Rough" to their notion, and "Ready" to fight Whoever their leader, you'll find Taylor there, Determined to meet them, whatever their might. Irish Thanks to America. The Dublin Freeman's Journal of the 3d ult, thug no tices the efforts making in America, for the relief of the famishing poor in Ire land:? " In America there is no overflowing of lip charity, and lack of that which is real? no humanity mongering?no plentitude of sympathetic action and poverty ot sym pathetic action?no wallowing in pre scriptive slander?no resource to Billin gsgate abuse of Ireland and the Irish, after the fashion of many parties in England no churlish, mean, money-lending, politi co-economico spirits to guide and disgrace its progress. . No! the conduct of America stands in bright and glorious contrast with that of England. In the day of our deso lation we have found the readiest hands? aye! and the most bounteous?stretched to I our aid from the mouth of the St. Lawrence to the mouth of the Mississippi, without the flourish of the Pharisee, or the cold blooded calculation of the Legist. " Honour then to America. In it the causes of humanity needs no spur from shame, hypocrisy, 01 'state policy.' In her bosom we knew that our exile9 found a refuge where they were safe from exter minating landlords and class-legislatrorr? where the motto for all was 'live, and let live!'?and not?'live ye, the many?or die?for the few?theunpriviledged for the privileged!' But never, much as our hearts yearned towards America as the asy lum of our hopeles cast-out thousands, ne ver, we say, great as was our experience of the generosity with which our country men were received on its shores, were we prepared for the surprising acts of humani ty and benevolence towards this stricken nation, which mail after mail enables us to record, and to bless. ?? We write with hearts of overflowing gratitude and love?gratitude and love not springing so much from the sense of bene fits received, as from a respect for the man ner in which they have been tendered. In the efforts that are made by Ameiicans to succor and to save us, we view the promise of that sure and Christian friendship which ought to keep pace with the progress of civilization; but which pseudo-statesmen never cultivate between nations, unless for an occasion?as if the interests of man kind were not identified with amity."

UTlIAM'S Vegetable Electuary, an internal remedy for the Piles,?prepared bv Dr. A. Upham, M. D., a tegular educated Physician who has devoted fifteen years attention almost en tirely to this disease. The Electuary is a certain cure for the Piles, and also for other diseases of a similar nature, which are frequently found in conjunction with Piles, Hashes, Inflammation of the Liver, and Spleen; Inflamma tion, Soreness, and Ulceration of the Stomach, Bow els, Kidneys, and bladder ; Inflammatory and Mer curial Rheumatism ; Impurity of Blood Weakness* and Inflammation of the Spine. THE VEGETABLE PILE ELECTUARY is the only really successful remedy for that dangerous and distressing complaint, the PILES, ever offered to the American Public. Mark this: it is an INTERNAL REMEDY? not an externil application?and will cure any case of Piles, either Bleeding or Blind, Internal or Exter nal ; and probably the only thing that will. There is no mistake about it. It is a positive cure?speedy and permanent. It is also a convenient medicine to take, and improves the general health in a remarka ble manner. It is very mild in its operation, and may be taken in cases of the most acute inflammation, without danger. All external applications are in the highest degree disagreeable, inconvenient, and offensive; and from the very nature of the disease, temporary in their eflects. This medciihe attacks the disease at its source, and REMOVING THE CAUSE, ren ders the cure CERTAIN and PERMANENT. The Electuary contains mineral medicine, no Al oes, Coeocynth, Gamboge, or other powerful and ir ritating purgative. No fear of taking cold while unl der its influence; no change in diet necessary. If taken according to directions, a cure for life is guar anteed / * ^ Sold wholesale and retail by WYATT <fc KET CHAM 121 Fulton st., New York.
